Re: Anyone tried (or heard of) shirataki?
I tried them, and really didn't like them at all. They were very rubbery to me. I had heard many good things about them.
I think my problem was that I was looking for a pasta substitute and was expecting a different taste. On WW I think they are either 1 or 0 points for the bag. They come in a bag with a liquid and is in the refrigerated section of the Oriental/Asian store. I believe they cost about $1.70 a bag. Make sure you rinse them well, some people have reported that they smell bad right out of the bag but not to let it discourage you because once you rinse them and par boil them they lose the smell. Since it is tofu it absorbs the flavor of whatever you are cooking them in.
Give them a try, if you like them, then it will be a low cal addition to your healty eating plan.
